With Massachusetts Maple Month kicking off and spring right around the corner, MassWildlife and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) have a lot of exciting events in store for this week.

Check out Maple Sugar Days this weekend in Milton, where you can make real traditional maple syrup and enjoy the beauty of Brookwood Farm. If you can’t make it to Milton this weekend, be sure to preregister for Maple Sugarin’ on March 18 at 10 a.m. at the Breakheart Reservation in Saugus, where you can enjoy some delicious maple syrup and learn about its production.

History buffs will love learning about the history of ice harvesting at Walden Pond, this Sunday at 1 p.m., on an interactive 1.5 mile hike at the Walden Pond State Reservation in Concord.

Anglers and fish enthusiasts won’t want to miss a talk by Ken Simmons, MassWildlife Hatchery Chief, about Massachusetts trout stocking in Worcester on Wednesday, at 7pm on March 8! This talk is sponsored by the Central Massachusetts Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Click here for directions.

For families this week we have Snakes Alive!, a presentation by Peter Mirick featuring live snakes, hosted by the White Oak Land Conservation Society. It’s in Holden on March 10 at 10:30am.
